Time to show off your pet’s incredible smile! We encourage high-quality photos that are creative, fun, and heartwarming. Photos of any pet pictured in a Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair (or Scooter!) may be submitted. Have more than one pet using a Walkin’ Wheels? Take a group shot and enter the whole fur family together! Can’t choose just one photo? You may submit up to 3 photos and the Walkin’ Pets staff will decide which is the best to enter.
Submission period: July 1, 2021 through August 20th, 5PM EST.
- Photos must be submitted by 5PM EST on August 20, 2021.
- Multiple animals can appear in the photo as long as at least one is using a Walkin’ Wheels wheelchair or scooter. Humans may also be in the photo!
- You may submit up to 3 photos per family
- If multiple pets are submitted individually, only 1 pet will be featured in the calendar per family
- Photos should be the largest file size possible and high resolution (at least 1,200 pixels in the longest dimension).

- You may not submit photos that have been used in previous Walkin’ Pets calendars.
- Once photos are submitted, Walkin’ Pets is given full permission to use the photos for promotional or other purposes in print, online, video, film, or other mediums.
Photos will be reviewed, and qualifying submissions will be posted for voting. This year’s voting will occur on the Walkin’ Pets Facebook page during from the end of August through September 2021. Winners will be chosen based on the cumulative number of “likes” their photos receive on our Facebook voting gallery during each round of voting.
To give you even more of an opportunity to vote for your favorite pets, this year’s content will feature three rounds of voting:
First Round Voting: will run from 8/23 through 9/3

Our 12 Calendar Contest Winners (one for each month) will be contacted by email in October and announced on the Walkin’ Pets website and social media platforms. Our Calendar Cover Winner will be selected by Walkin’ Pets based on several factors, including: number of votes, quality of photo, and pet’s biography. Two additional honors will be awarded, the Walkin’ Pets team will select a rescue to be named Rescue of the Year and select the 2022 Walkin’ Pets Hero honoree. These special award recipients are selected for their dedication, advocacy and care they provide to handicapable pets throughout the year. A press release will be sent to newspapers and TV stations in each winner’s state or country with the winning photo and story about the pet.
Walkin’ Pets believes that every pet is a miracle and will try to include all pets who are entered into this year’s calendar and will be celebrating your pets all year! We will feature your pets and their incredible stories all year across our website and Social Media!
All profit from calendar sales will be donated to the Handicapped Pets Foundation. Get creative, and good luck!
